“Close to everything!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 October 2013

Great location a short stroll to the beach or turn left for a short stroll to shops. Very quiet considering its on the Main Street. Bikes, beach towels, beach chairs you name it it was available to take to the beach - for free! Rooms are spotless even a spare roll of loo paper. The only down side was the sewerage pipe from the apartment above ran that ran down our patio wall was leaking. But still thoroughly enjoyed our holiday.

Thank you for your review, great to hear you enjoyed your stay.
The 'sewerage pipe' you refer to is actually the Air conditioning drain from the unit above which can overflow on rare occasion, so no cause for alarm.
We hope to see you back again in the future.
Kind regards, Melissa - Manager

We spent a week here with a large group booking and were very happy with all aspects of the apartments.

The on site managers were brilliant in every way, informative, accommodating an helpful. Took a lot of pressure off us and booked things for us so we could spend time relaxing.
Apartments themselves were well appointed and very spacious. All furnished differently, due to individual owners, but comfortable nonetheless.

The location is A1 with views through the trees to the ocean, I was able to watch the sunrise each day and listen to the waves at night. The street is so quiet, it was a relaxing place to stay.

The beach, with lifeguards all year round is perfect and a lovely boardwalk and BBQ areas are available if you feel the need to leave the complex (it has everything).

A few lovely restaurants and a corner store nearby are convenient too.

I hope Trinity Beach retains its charm for a bit longer and escapes the high rise developers that other beaches have been exploited by!

Room Tip: Apartments near entry doors can get noisy when people leave the doors to bang shut at night.

Thank you for reviewing our Property. It is always difficult with large groups having different furnishings in each apartment and I am pleased to hear it worked well on this occasion. So glad to hear you all had a great time and that we helped to make it great for you.
I appreciate the feedback regarding the entry doors and will consider placing signs for other Guests to be considerate of this.
We hope to see you all again in the future.
Take care, Melissa - Manager.

We stayed 3 nights and could easily have stayed a week or two. The location was excellent, close to shops, the beach and restaurants. The staff were exceptional and could not do enough to make our stay a great one. All in all a fantastic place to stay.

Room Tip: We stayed in a one bedroom apartment, very well appointed.

We have been here now for 10 days and still have another 1 to go. On the Beach Apartments are wonderful, the managers are totally here to ensure your stay is enjoyed. It's a place where they know what to provide and share before you even ask. It is truly "on the beach" and the view and feel about the place is extremely relaxing. Overall Trinity Beach is a very special place. We have stayed in many different accommodations the world over, and this place is right up there with the best. Thank you.

Room Tip: The one bedroom apartments are all great with beach views.

We stayed for a week in a two bed ocean view in the Golden Cowrie building and it was wonderful, we were on the top floor (third floor) which made for a beautiful view over the beach and sea. The view out of our bedroom window was breathtaking and just the sort of picture you want to wake up to when you're on holiday. We had two of our children with us (11 and 17) and they loved it too. We all decided we wanted to live there! Each building has its own pool and we had it to ourself most of our holiday. The beach across the road was brilliant, because we went in August there were no stingers and we swam in the beautiful water (23 degrees) nearly every day twice a day! The apartments are directly across from the life guard station so you feel nice and safe. :) Trinity beach is a fantastic, picturesque location about 20 - 30 mins drive from Cairns and 40 - 50 mins from Port Douglas and these apartments are right in the middle of Trinity Beach. I think this is the best of both worlds. The office staff were really helpful and nothing was a problem for them. The kitchen was really well equipped and made for making meals at the apartments really easy. The whole apartment was really well set out. We sat out on the balcony and looked out over the sea in the moonlight a few evenings and it was very relaxing. We would definitely stay here again. We are already looking at booking for next year!

Thank you so much for sharing the lovely photo and for the great feedback. As Managers we don't get to wake up to that view but are pleased you loved it and are already planning to return. Thank you also for the comments about the swimming pool. We don't declare to have the largest Resort pool, however we do have one (1) in each building which, as you found, proivdes privacy for our Guests. At the end of the day, for those who want to swim laps, there is the beatiful Coral Sea jsut across the road.
thank you again and we look forward to seeing you next year :).
Kind regards - Melissa, Manager

We have just got back from a 3 day stay at these apartments all I can say is when can I go back . These Apartments are a minute walk to the beach , 3 minute walk to the tavern which was great food at a reasonable price. At night we sat on the beach as it was lit up directly across from the apartments we always felt safe .The owners and staff where extremely friendly and approachable , units where clean and exactly what we expected. If you are looking for somewhere to relax and just have a trouble free stay this is the place . At night the town just seemed to go into shut down mod so peaceful unlike many other places I have stayed..EXCELLENT !!!!!!!

Thank you for your kind review and we are so pleased to hear that it is exactly what you expected. We have worked very hard to ensure everyone has the best holiday - most times we get it right but I guess there will always be people who we can't please. I'm glad we got it right with you. Living so close to Cairns, we certainly hope to see you again in the future.

We spent 10 nights at On The Beach Apartments, and i must say they were the best 10 nights away from home that we have had in a long time.
The people running it could not have been more helpful or friendly, would recommend the place to anyone, and the whole town is just beautiful.
